Johnny Depp Embraces Unconventional Career Path in London, Extends Stay Amid Release of New Amber Heard Documentary

Johnny Depp Embraces Artistry in London: Actor’s New Career as an Artist

Johnny Depp is not just a movie star, he’s also making waves in the art world. The Pirates of the Caribbean actor has been spending his time in London ramping up his sideline in art by renting an art studio in London’s West End and immersing himself in the world of commercial art, as reported by The Daily Mail.

Depp, who has been in the UK for the past six months, recently sold prints from his debut art collection for a whopping $3.8million (£3 million) in just a few hours. The collection featured paintings of four people who have inspired him – Rolling Stone Keith Richards, actress Liz Taylor, actor Al Pacino, and singer Bob Dylan – embellished with his characteristic freehand flourishes.

The response to Depp’s art has been overwhelming, with the website of his gallery, Castle Fine Art, crashing due to the volume of interest from fans. Depp shared on his Instagram, “I’ve always used art to express my feelings and to reflect on those who matter most to me, like my family, friends and people I admire. My paintings surround my life, but I kept them to myself and limited myself. No one should ever limit themselves.”

Last summer, Depp’s prints titled Five, depicting him as he approached the fifth year of his legal battle with former wife Amber Heard, were also sold by the same gallery over a 13-day period.

As Depp continues to make a name for himself in the art world, he is also busy editing the movie Modi, a passion project about the Italian painter and sculptor Amedeo Modigliani. Additionally, fans can look forward to seeing Depp play Satan in the upcoming film The Carnival At The End Of Days, an apocalyptic comedy set to start shooting in January 2025. With Depp’s talent and creativity shining in the art world, fans are eagerly awaiting to see what he creates next.
